Following the COP26 summit to accelerate action towards the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), this virtual event will serve as an opportunity to underscore the inextricable link between climate and food, building on the outcome of both the UN Food Systems Summit (UNFSS) and COP26, and looking into the next year’s COP27.
This virtual event aims to galvanize broad support and commitment to collaborate, including driving a policy/political support on the need to foster linkages and action in support of both the food systems and climate agenda.
Invited speakers will discuss the main outcomes of the COP26 and their implications to food systems transformation and try to identify policy and institutional entry points where the Climate Convention can support transformations for more sustainable food systems and vice-versa. Furthermore, they will explore how to mainstream food systems issues into national UNFCCC instruments such as the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and National Adaptation Plans (NAPs), building on its existing mechanisms and processes.
The event will also include a session with live feedback from the audience, and this will be facilitated by a Q&A function available on the event’s virtual platform.
Register today! Join us at this event alongside the UNFSS Special Envoy, Dr. Agnes Kalibata, and food system and climate stakeholders who have attended the COP26 in Glasgow.
